The night I completely forget about Grey's Anatomy, it's new. The night I have nothing whatsoever to do, it's a rerun. Figures.
I love having Liz home (even if the first thing I had to do was pay her the cable bill, LOL). I mean, who else can join me in reciting the entire script of Pirates of the Caribbean, Pride & Prejudice, and every Disney movie on the planet? Scuttle the seagull's attempt at 'singing' in The Little Mermaid is our current favorite.
After all the talk about dressing up as Jack Sparrow for Halloween, I still failed to secure a wig - mostly because I couldn't find one under fifty bucks - and since one clearly cannot be Jack without the hair, I'm back to square one on a costume. Anybody have any simple ideas?
The Josh Groban contest winner will be notified tomorrow. I'm not really holding out any hope whatsoever - but I'll be keeping my phone on ring during class, and if I see a 407 area code, I can't promise I won't scream just a little.
Yeah - my finals schedule? Sucks. Even though I only have two. See, classes end Wednesday (the 6th), I have one final that Friday (the 8th) - and somehow the universe found it appropriate not to schedule the other one until the NEXT Friday. Otherwise known as (a) a full WEEK after my first one, (b) the LAST day of finals, and (c) the day before my cousin's wedding (in Birmingham). Meaning I have to take a final on Friday, hang around Chapel Hill for a full WEEK with absolutely no one to talk to and nothing to do, then take another final the NEXT Friday and immediately hop into the car, drive eight hours to Florida, get there at 11pm, then leave again the next morning to go to Birmingham with my family for the wedding. Grrr. I'll ask my Persian teacher to have mercy and let me take it early, but I doubt she will.
Not like anyone cares but me, but my final paper for syntax is going to be about complementizers in Dutch. At least I found a topic I'm actually somewhat interested in.
So Apple bumped their Macbook Pros up to Core 2 Duo processors. The hard drives are getting progressively bigger, too - apparently you can get them up to 200 GB now. My 60 GB is the Achilles heel of my Powerbook; I'm constantly having to dump non-crucial things onto the 80 GB backup and then delete them from the internal HD, just to make room. Come on, guys - let's have a 12" Macbook Pro along with the release of Leopard, huh? Core 2 Duo processor, OS Leopard, 100 GB, aluminum, around 4 pounds... I'm still waiting.
I am really, really rooting for Lorelai and Christopher on Gilmore Girls. Weigh in if you have an opinion.
